Canada Post’s Rotating Strike

  • What if Ottawa or other cities in the Eastern Region are selected during Canada Post’s rotating strike?
    In the event of a rotating strike, mail will be delivered as usual. There may, however, be delays in delivery as cities are affected one after the other. To learn which cities are affected by the strike each day, visit the Canada Post website.
  • Potential Service Disruption to Postal Delivery
    In case of a full interruption in Canada Post’s mail service, SCS will be introducing measures to ensure that you can continue to receive your mail from us. Visit our website at this time to learn how SCS is processing mail. The website will be updated regularly as we learn about Canada Posts strike actions.

Meet George, a Participant of Children’s Case Management at Service Coordination

Karen knows the advocacy and determination that comes with having a child with many disabilities. She and George, her 18-year-old son, have faced more uncertainty than most. They lived for 21 months at a hotel while waiting for City of Ottawa affordable housing after her marriage ended. Karen and George have now found stability and support.

“Cooking is not difficult. Cooking is easy.”

Tomas works in a kitchen at an Italian restaurant. He takes care of dishes and helps with the cooking, alongside six other kitchen staff. “It’s no problem,” he says. The Bistro is close to home, so Tomas can walk, take the bus or bicycle to work.
